Stock from scratch

This is so amazingly easy, I couldn't believe it. Factor in the amount of soup I make & the amount of veggies I eat, it takes me no time at all to fill my veggie scrap bag.

One big pot, lots of water, veggie scraps. Boil for 1 hour & strain the ever loving shit out of it.

Spicy Italian Sausage Soup

Usual soup start.

Add: minced Serrano, Scotch Bonnet (if you can stand the heat), peeled, seeded and diced tomato. After it comes to a boil, lower heat to low, cover & cook for 1 hour.  Turn off stove, add arugula, spinach & cooked elbows. Stir in a little bit of half & half or milk and some sharp cheddar.
